Theatre Classes and Camps - New Conservatory Theatre Center - Theatre Education - San Francisco v ---

We’re thrilled to announce our fall programs for vaccinated students ages 12 & up. Wanna come act and perform at NCTC on Saturdays? We’ve got two options for you based on your skill level. Wanna learn about costume design from home online? We’ve hooked you up with an artist in NYC! Let’s get back into the performance lab and brush up on those skills before the upcoming spring ensemble projects.
